An affordable alternative to Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is fixed over an existing tooth. Generally, they are fitted for the purpose of protecting a weak tooth, covering up unsightly discolouration, breaks, cracks or otherwise misshapen tooth. This dental procedure is one of the most widely available and popular, and is sometimes even installed for the purpose of supporting other types of dental procedures, such as to hold a dental bridge in place.

If you’re considering getting a dental crown to improve the appearance of your teeth, it is important to know the dental procedure required to get one fitted. For a crown to be installed, there needs to be an existing tooth present to be filed down to accommodate for the crown. Following this, an impression of the filed tooth is taken and used as a guide to create the dental crown, and while the crown is being made you will have to wear a temporary crown before returning again to the dentist.

The cost of a dental crown is another important factor to consider. Depending on whether you get the procedure through the NHS or through a private clinic, you’re looking at paying £250-£1200 for a single metal crown, for example. For aesthetic reasons, most people would want the crown to match their natural teeth, requiring it to be made from porcelain – this would bump up the price to around £2000.

After reading into the different dental options to mask an unsightly tooth, you may be wondering if there is another, more cost-friendly option, which doesn’t require a visit to the dentist.

Luckily, Need That Smile offers an affordable alternative to dental crowns, and each step can be done from the comfort of your own home, unlike the dental crown process.

What material is a dental crown made of?

There are a range of materials that dental crowns can be made of. On the lower end of the price range, crowns can be made of stainless steel or metals such as platinum. On the higher end of the price range, crowns can be composed of porcelain or resin, for a natural tooth look. A combination of porcelain and metal is also an option.

How do Clip In Veneers compare to dental crowns, cost wise?

If you’re looking for a dental crown which matches your natural tooth colour, you would probably opt for a porcelain crown, which, on average, costs £2000 per tooth! On the other hand, our Clip In Veneers cost a fraction of this, depending on whether you require a full set or just an upper or lower set. We also offer flexible payment options through Klarna.

Am I suitable for Clip In Veneers?

If you suffer with low confidence because of your cosmetic teeth issues, but are reluctant to commit to permanent, daunting dental procedures, then Clip In Veneers are a perfect solution for you. The only requirement is that you have at least 4 teeth on the upper arch and 4 teeth on the lower arch of your teeth for the veneers to be placed over.
